Budweiser Clydesdales & Brewmaster Tour to Visit RiverDogs

King of Beers showcase will be on April 23 as RiverDogs host Savannah Sand Gnats 

CHARLESTON, SC – Here is another reason to get excited about a Charleston RiverDogs’ Thirsty Thursday.

On Thursday, April 23, the world famous Budweiser Clydesdales, along with the King of Beers’ Brewmaster Tour will visit Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park prior to the Charleston RiverDogs hosting rival Savannah Sand Gnats. First pitch is slated for 7:05 pm.

“Fans of all ages will enjoy seeing the iconic Clydesdales, who represent Budweiser, one of our premier and longtime sponsors,” said RiverDogs General Manager Dave Echols. “Having them parade around Riley Park will be a most-impressive sight.”

The impressive and world-renown Clydesdale horses are an enduring symbol of Budweiser’s rich heritage, tradition and commitment to quality. The hitch team’s visit to Riley Park is one of hundreds of appearances it will make in 2015 and it never fails to draw a crowd. This year marks the 82ndanniversary of the Budweiser Clydesdales, which made their first appearance on behalf of Anheuser-Busch on April 7, 1933, when they delivered a case of Budweiser to the White House in celebration of the repeal of prohibition of beer.

The Clydesdales will set up in adjacent Brittlebank Park at 5 pm, and their visit will be free to the public. At 6:30, the team will enter Riley Park and parade around the field for fans to get a close-up look at these stunning horses.

In addition to the Clydesdales’ appearance, Budweiser will also bring their Brewmaster Tour to Riley Park. This is a one-of-a-kind mobile experience providing guests 21 and over a glimpse of Budweiser’s brewing process. Fashioned after Budweiser’s Brewery Tours, the 48-foot trailer evolves into a model that offers consumers a step-by-step view of the 30-day brewing process of Budweiser.

Brewmasters lead this fully immersive experience by interacting with the ingredients, smelling aromas off the brewkettle, experiencing the cool aging cellars and tasting the finished product. After the tour is completed, visitors are encouraged to hang out in the area as fans will be able to talk with the brewmasters and purchase Budweiser gear through their online store. Admission will be free.
